Window seals are small rubber strips around your windows’ edges that help form an airtight seal when they’re closed. This helps prevent drafts from entering your home, which leads to higher utility bills and discomfort due to temperature fluctuations throughout the year. However, seals on windows can begin to wear down or break over time, causing them to become inefficient.
Continue reading as Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix discusses the most common indications of window seal failure and shares how to find the best window replacement contractor to fix the issue.
Signs That Your Window Seal Is Broken
If you feel a breeze near any part of a closed window, it is likely due to gaps between the frame and sash created by broken or worn-down sealant material.
Moisture accumulation in any particular surface area near the window is another indication that a seal has broken. This is common for many types of windows, like gliding windows.
Warped window frames are another sign suggesting water leakage has been present, and your window seal has failed. This has to be quickly addressed so further damage doesn’t occur later on down the line, making repair costs more expensive than anticipated.
Finding a Reliable Window Contractor
When searching for someone who specializes in replacing damaged windows with new ones, it’s essential that only qualified professionals who understand how to replace windows properly take on the project. A few good resources include local listings, online review sites and friends or family members
